This week on TechCrunch TV's Ask a VC show, we have Battery Ventures partner Brian O'Malley in the studio. As you may remember, you can submit questions for our guests either in the comments or here and we’ll ask them during the show. O'Malley leads Battery’s Seed & Early Stage practices, while focusing on investments in e-commerce, online marketplaces and Internet applications. His investments include Bazaarvoice, BoostCTR, BrightEdge, Coupa, Duetto, H.BLOOM, Insitu (acquired by Boeing), J. Hilburn, Joor, HotelTonight, Peerflix (acquired by Live Universe), Serena & Lily, Skullcandy, Sociable Labs, Sosh, TradeKing, Viddy and World Golf Tour. Prior to Battery, O'Malley spent several years at Bowstreet (acquired by IBM), as Director of West Coast Technical Sales and earlier as the company’s Technical Evangelist preaching the future of web service-based APIs. He started his career as a web developer for Motorola Computer Group while only a sophomore in college. O'Malley has invested in a number of startups that are aiming to transform offline industries, so we're interested to hear where he sees as the next big opportunity in offline industries in need of transformation. And considering that O'Malley is a seed investor, we're curious on his thoughts on AngelList's Syndicates. Please send us your questions for O'Malley here or put them in the comments below!
